I submitted an early version of the arm_arch_timer errata workaround series
back before zesty and, as promised[*], I've reviewed the changes that were
made to that series before landing to look for fixes we need to pick up.
One such fix was in this patch:
 "arm64: arch_timer: Enable CNTVCT_EL0 trap if workaround is enabled"
which could break the trapping if the user access bit was set at reset.
For that, I've reverted the early version and replaced it with the upstream
cherry-pick.

Another was in this patch:
 "arm64: arch_timer: Allows a CPU-specific erratum to only affect a subset of CPUs"
Which, while it doesn't impact Ubuntu today, could if we were to enable
CNOFIG_PREEMPT_TRACER.

We're also carrying a backport of the series that enables the SBSA
watchdog driver - there have been a few fixes to it since it was
merged, and those are included here as well.
